Celebrate Constitution that was, use raw House power to defund Obamacare
The United States constitution is not self-executing. Sadly, in the Age of Obama it is more often honored in the breach. Republicans gain no ground pleading with Democrats to follow a Constitution they have long despised and whining about media bias as an excuse not to exercise its power of the purse. Yesterday was the 226th anniversary of the signing of the world’s greatest and | Read More »
You Didn’t Build These Ten Things – Barack Obama Did
It’s not like he didn’t warn us that his goal was to fundamentally transform America – but most of us didn’t think that meant wrecking the economy, killing the golden goose, giving away the farm and generally screwing the pooch. But here we are and here are the top ten things Obama owns – despite him blaming everyone else – he built them: 10. Food | Read More »
Owner of Obama Express store charged with food stamp fraud
Cross-posted from The Quinton Report. WBAL was the first place I saw this story. They reported: A federal grand jury indicted nine retail store owners in Baltimore City and Baltimore County for ‘food stamp trafficking.’ Court papers said the retailers redeemed the food stamps for cash and split the money with food stamp recipients. The amounts totaled about $7 million. According to investigators, the retailers | Read More »
Arab Spring Cleaning
Arab Spring Cleaning by Michael Goodell http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com After watching last week’s events unfold, I have three comments to make about the remarkably nimble performance put in by president Barack Obama’s foreign policy team. 1) Over the years I have been known to criticize our president. Many have suspected that there was nothing he could do that would please me. Which is untrue. I can and | Read More »

Dana Loesch Kicks Off Ground Offensive Against Obamacare In Virginia
Yesterday, Americans for Prosperity-Virginia launched their ground campaign against Medicaid expansion in Virginia. The expansion represents the most expensive provision of the new health care law. So far, the Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission has held hearings about accepting federal money that would enroll an additional 400,000 Virginia residents into the program. Yes, more people would be covered, but at the cost of quality health care. In | Read More »

Put Vladimir Putin’s name in the Little Book.
You know, the one with Later For YOU written on the cover. The United States and Russia agreed Saturday on an outline for the identification and seizure of Syrian chemical weapons and said Syria must turn over an accounting of its arsenal within a week. [snip] Senior administration officials had said Friday the Obama administration would not press for U.N. authorization to use force against | Read More »
The Votes For Syria and Immigration Reform Exist In Congress
Last June, the U.S. Senate overwhelming passed immigration reform by a vote of 68-32. Yet, many commentators noted that it’s DOA in the House. Similarly, the president’s recent plea to Congress to approve a resolution authorizing him to use military force in Syria seems like a long shot as well. A rough count of the votes has 25 senators – 18 Democrats and 7 Republicans – voting/leaning yes, with | Read More »

America’s exceptional faith
Today we got to enjoy Vladimir Putin’s critique of American exceptionalism at the New York Times: My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust. I appreciate this. I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. | Read More »
Vladamir Putin Owns US Foreign Policy
Has Barack Obama unofficially resigned? We wouldn’t get that lucky – at least not until he can figure out how the AACA effects his retirement healthcare. It only seems that way because of some White House Mouth of Sauron’s response to Vladimir Putin’s New York Times Op-Ed.
“That’s all irrelevant,” the White House official said in response. “He put this proposal forward and he’s now invested in it. That’s good. That’s the best possible reaction. He’s fully invested in Syria’s CW disarmament and that’s potentially better than a military strike – which would deter and degrade but wouldn’t get rid of all the chemical weapons. He now owns this*. He has fully asserted ownership of it and he needs to deliver.”

Capitol City Project, MRCTV Go To Million Muslim March, Find It’s Mostly 9/11 Truthers
The Capitol City Project’s Joe Schoffstall and MRCTV’s Dan Joseph decided to speak with Cornel West and a few 9/11 truthers at the Million Muslim March yesterday. And by “million,” I mean twenty-five people.
Vladimir Putin Trolls America
Vladimir Putin has decided to troll America with an op-ed in the New York Times. He gets the better of Barack Obama with much of his op-ed, including pointing out that if our rule is we won’t touch countries with nukes it is just going to incentivize countries getting nukes. But he ends with this: My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked | Read More »
Total Recall: Women, Hispanics, and Blue Collar Workers United To Defend Gun Rights In Colorado
As conservatives celebrate their victory over booting anti-gun legislators in Colorado’s recall elections last night, let’s look at the some of the reasons that contributed to their success. In Dave Weigel’s September 11 post on Slate, the spokeswoman for the recall, Jennifer Kerns, provided the information and showed that even Democrats love their guns. Granted, gun rights supporters have known this for quite some time. The only people | Read More »
Obama’s Syria Speech Shows What We Haven’t Learned From 9/11
So what can we learn from all this going forward?
1) Don’t draw a Red Line unless you’ve got a nice “or else” ready if the other guy snorts it up off the floor.
2) People outside the constraints of Judeo-Christian morality will resort to WMDs, terrorism and anything else if force pays off better than Pacifism.
3) Military action of too small an order of magnitude to enter into the risk-reward mathematics of a would-be terrorist will only piss them off instead of deterring them.
President Obama failed all three of these lessons. As long as our nation remains this ignorant of the lessons of 9/11, we can expect more terrorism. It works like Hell.

9/11@12, Benghazi@12 months and dwindling Bush intel
What is the state of U.S. intelligence since President Obama succeeded President Bush in 2009? Twelve years ago this morning Usama bin Laden’s al Qaeda carried out the deadliest attack against Americans on American soil since Americans turned on each other in the War Between the States. Thirty months ago, UBL was killed by U.S. Navy Seals in Pakistan. One year ago today, terrorists carried | Read More »
